SOLVED: EDIT LINKS Missing From YouTube Channel Art

If you want to add or change the URL links that appear in your header channel art in YouTube, but cannot find the link (pun intended), you are likely using Google Chrome or MS Edge.

There are several annoyances using Chrome on YouTube, which is definitely unexpected because Google owns both.  In this case you need to use Internet Explorer or the “pencil” edit icon does not appear in the top right of the channel art graphic.

Here is the process you need to follow to add or change the links you have in the YouTube Channel Art:

  1. Use INTERNET EXPLORER (not Chrome or Edge) to sign into
  2. Click your name in the top right corner and select MY CHANNEL
  3. Click the pencil icon in the top right of the channel art
  4. Click EDIT LINKS
  5. Change the links as you see fit and make sure the OVERLAY FIRST x LINKS ON CHANNEL ART is enabled
